New Liverpool loan signing Victor Moses is the key to Liverpool winning the Premier League, according to Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi.
Impressed with Moses' goalscoring performance for the Super Eagles in their 2-0 over Malawi on Saturday, the outspoken coach spoke of his delight with the 22-year-old's switch to Anfield.
“I am happy with this because Liverpool is a club I like very much," he was quoted by the Liverpool Echo.
“The arrival of Moses means Liverpool will win the championship because he is a very good player who will boost the side.”
Known as a flamboyant and charismatic character, Keshi has recently been under fire for allegedly making racist remarks about Malawi coach Tom Saintfiet in a television interview.
Moses was an impressive signing for Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, and the move gives the Nigeria international another chance in the Premier League after being told he was not in Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho's immediate plans.
On Saturday, Moses put in an impressive performance, scoring a penalty and creating a lot of goalscoring opportunities for his side. Nigeria are into the last round of qualification play-offs in the Confederation of African Football qualifying group, and will have to navigate another tie before being sure of their place in Brazil 2014.
Moses made 74 appearances for Wigan Athletic in the Premier League before moving to Chelsea in 2012. He made 23 appearances for Chelsea, scoring just one goal. Moses had previously represented England at under-16, under-17, under-19 and under-21 level before declaring for Nigeria at senior level. He has five goals in 14 appearances for the Super Eagles.
